“When it comes to a preventable cancer like mesothelioma,
awareness truly does save lives.”
This video well captures the hope that radiates from the survivor that is my inspiration for helping with this effort. I believe that her words will inspire you to participate far more than mine, so you can also read more of her story here.
I found her story more than compelling, but I also admire the idea and the purpose of this campaign.
I plan to write multiple posts this week here and elsewhere, but first I wanted to share this information in time for others to participate, too.
You’ll see some of this information again if you check back for following articles. So if you can’t start today, it’s not too late.
Mesolthelioma Awareness Day (MAD) is September 26, but the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance is encouraging participants in this effort to post throughout the entire month. My hope was to begin sooner, but many writers do their best work closing in on a deadline---so if you have a blog or want to help, jump in!
Or, perhaps if you begin on or after Friday, you can compile your favorite MAD articles and blogs and include them in your post.
How you can help:
- Pick an aspect of this disease that you find interesting
- Offer unique information or a unique perspective (this could be your reasons for finding certain information interesting or how much you learned about the disease or an aspect of it that surprised you)
- Post a blog, write an article, or perhaps share your thoughts on social media
- Share your post and share other donated posts
If you are not a writer or need another option:
Check back later this week for links to MAD blogs and articles to read and share.
